Not having the inside edges sealed is bad, so if they won't at least seal it with epoxy, I'd pass. If you have a lot of specific tweaks you like on a board I would probably buy that board and then have customsplitboards.com do the deed. Then again if you are riding a lot of rocks, that might be a lot of coin to drop.

In the long run, a pre-built split from Voile is the least expensive option. If you have something about a board that you really like, then getting a custom split by Monk or someone else is still well worth it. I would only go to a shop if they can show you examples of their work. Better yet, they should be willing to provide the board AND split it, and give you the option of turning it down if they do a crappy job.
